From the Author:

Effective Church Administration is about connecting churches with people in the surrounding communities. It goes beyond the neighborhood yard signs and Sunday morning gatherings. The sole purpose is to help the church recognize who people are and using the gifts and talents they have to offer. The focus should be about bringing everyone together for the reason churches exist. This guidebook was brought to life after I was continually creating administration books for local churches. When I began to see the same pattern among all types of churches, I decided to compile the most effective materials collected over the past decade and place them into this book. This guidebook is a step-by-step process to help assist those in church administration for today's society.  The book does not go into every ministry function, however, it does pinpoint what each ministry area, and the church team as a whole should be doing. It is advisable that both leadership, staff, and the entire ministry team understand how important it is to connect and communicate with the people who enter your church doors. It is equally important that Senior Pastors learn to delegate responsibilities to their leaders.
It is imperative to understand that "communication" goes well beyond the Sunday morning, "Hello", and the occasional, "We love you" comments. Words need to be placed into action. People need to feel involved and leaders need to be able to lead. Now is not the time to "micromanage". It is more wise for churches to focus on the hurting people immediately around their church location than always strive to be the next "mega" church. After all, Jesus walked from town to town, sharing the Word of God to people, speaking the truth, and teaching them to be like Him. In today's world, those "towns" are your local neighborhoods with homes and apartments, filled with the same people.

From the Back Cover:

J. L. Deskins and her husband Nelson are both ordained Reverends and have been assisting churches of different denominations for almost two decades. Over the years, J. L. Deskins has seen many churches struggle when it comes to their administration and organization. Some do not know where to start, while others put church administration to the bottom of their list. Unfortunately, their ministry teams and churches fall apart. Her desire is to empower church leadership and help them reach their surrounding communities and be successful for the kingdom of God. J. L. Deskins also holds a PMP Certification as a Project Manager, BS in Marketing Management, and is currently undergoing her MBA in IT Management. She and her husband enjoy daily life with their funny long-haired Dachshund and visiting nearby theme parks.
